22 kids… one big exam!

28 Jan

2010 has started of great for Upendo Rescue Centre in Nairobi.

Not only that in Germany an organization was opened to enable more funding, also two more interns from China have come in to support the centre for 3 months in education and fundraising.

Another great achievement was the finishing of the last classroom and 22 students proceeding to Standard 8, the last class in Primary school. The first job of Lin, the chinese intern is now to find 22 Kenyan families to support one child each for the registration for KCPE (800 KSh each, around 7 euros) and to mentor the child through the last, tough year prior to the nation-wide exam to be held in November.

This is the current picture of the 188 kids from Nursery to Class 8.
